Summary: I have tried it at a local store. After recording, I heard loud noise sounding like "click, click" in the video. Although other features are OK, I could not bear such kind of noise. It drove me crazy. So I did not buy this camcorder.
Summary: Great Camcorder. Easy to use with wonderful picture quality as well. The only thing I have a problem with is the editing software. I have no problems transferring directly to a DVD but if I want to edit and then write it to a DVD, I have problems playing the DVD. Otherwise, a great camcorder.
Summary: I just bought this camcorder. I used sony dcr sr 40 and dcr sr 42 before. I can say that this camcorder is perfect comparing to other two. If you want a better one you should buy a high definition camcorder with a higher price. The only cons: you cannot expect to take high quality pictures with it. This is a common problem in most of the camcorders.
Summary: Received this camcorder about 2 months ago and i ended up buying the extra battery cause the original only has a charge of 90 min the new battery has a charge of almost 240 min. The camera is great light weight easy to use easy to set up and has some really cool features def worth every penny that i paid for it.
Summary: With two sons and an old sony MiniDv that had died, I decided to look for a new one. I saw that many models from all the big brands were coming out March and April this year, so I decided to wait. I wanted a HDD camcorder, that was small and light weight. The hard drive didn't need to be super big, as I only have so much space on my computer.
Summary: I bought this camcorder after a lot of research and I'm glad I made the right choice. The only camcorder comparable with SR65 was the JVC MG330 or MG360. JVC 330/360 has less than 1 mega pixels and the price difference between the two was not much and I found it was worth spending on the extra resolution for better video quality. Video Quality : Very Good. I ve taken video Outdoors and Indoors.
Summary: I had been wanting to upgrade my 15 year old camcorder for some time, and since I no longer have small children at home anymore, I kept putting off making the final step. A co-worker had a Sony Hanycam at work on day and we had a ball with it. I began watching the sales on this amazing little creature and finally found the Sony Handycam SR65 on Amazon.com.
Summary: This is a great camcorder. Everytime I need electronics the first brand I look for is sony and I have never been dissappointed. This Camcorder has great picture and sound quality,and you can't beat the price offered by Amazon so don't bother looking at other sites. It is very easy to use and very compact. The hard disk is incredible and the screen is crystal clear. I do recommened buying the bag and battery package also,I did and don't regret it.
